Kate Rusby Withered and Died Lyrics



This cruel country has driven me down Teased me and lied, teased me and lied I've only sad stories to tell to this town My dreams have withered and died Once I was bending the tops of the trees Kind words in my ears and kind faces to see Then I struck up with the boys from the west They'd run and hide, they'd run and hide Count one to ten and he's gone with the west My dreams have withered and died Silver moon sailor and silver moonshine On the water so wide, the water so wide Steal from the bed of some good friend of mine My dreams have withered and died If I was a butterfly I'd live for a day I would be free just blowing away This cruel country has driven me down Teased me and lied, teased me and lied I've only sad stories to tell to this town My dreams have withered and died
